Fileshare defaults to the TCP/IP (CCITCP) protocol. When using CCITCP, you can use either CCITCP Direct or the following process:
If you do not set the environment variable, CCITCP assumes that ccitcp2 is running on the local machine. The Fileshare Client and the Fileshare Server must register with the same ccitcp2 process in order to communicate with each other.
For example, consider the situation where the Fileshare Server and the Fileshare Client are running on different machines and the ccitcp2 process is running on the same machine as the Fileshare Server. The environment variable CCITCP2 does not have to be set on the machine running the Fileshare Server. However, it must be set (on the machine running the Fileshare Client) to the TCP/IP host name of the machine where the Fileshare Server (and the ccitcp2 process) is running.
For example, consider the situation where mfds has been started with CCITCP2_PORT set to 2023, or using the -p 2023 option. You must set CCITCP2_PORT to 2023 on both the Fileshare Client and the Fileshare Server.
Many configuration options exist for CCITCP, details of these can be found in the comments within the CCI.INI configuration file.
